Economics is a social science and concerns how decisions affect our wealth, well-being and income. Through the BSc in Economics, you will study macroeconomics and microeconomics and can choose from a number of optional modules such as finance, health economics or experimental economics.
You will be able to use the behavioural economics laboratory to run real experiments. You also have open access to the Bloomberg facilities, which are the same trading terminals used in the City. You can take optional modules from the Humanities and Social Sciences and interdisciplinary modules. Single Hons Economics students from the University of Southampton can also take a minor subject, such as a language, web science, criminology, demography, education, sustainability or social policy. There are over twenty minors to choose from.
